Casa-Dea Estates 2009 Pinot Gris
Some wines defy the usual description of fruit flavours and smells – not because they don’t have them, but because they seamlessly come together to make a really tasty wine. At times like that you throw away the flavour wheel and talk more about the feeling that one gets over and above the smells and flavours. For those traditionalists out there, there’s a slight floral note to the wine with melon and citrus backing it; the palate is crisp and clean with apple, melon and great palate cleansing acidity that really wakes up the mouth – there’s also just a hint of sweetness in here, fighting with the acidity for dominance (acidity wins). For you liberal minded drinkers this one’s tasty and tingly on the tongue and is a real pleasure to sip on. Summer may be coming to a close but no reason not to relive it with this wine. Price: $18.95 – Rating: ****½
